Wearable Installations Blending The Spaces Between Species

Through the use of readily-dismissed, low-value natural materials, such as seaweed and salt, I endeavour to produce desirable, high-value, wearable adornment. By instigating comparative discussion around my work with that of non-human-animal makers employing the same materials and techniques as myself, such as decorator crabs, birds or dolphins, I hope to challenge the viewer’s concepts of value, craft and adornment within the natural world.
